Buying Real Estate:
Real Estate is the largest single investment most people make in their lifetime. My goal is to help my clients find not only their ‘perfect home’, but also a home that is a sound investment with maximum potential for appreciation. I strive to accomplish this with total professionalism and integrity. I believe in taking a personal approach with every client as each client has unique needs. 100% of my business comes from referrals and returning clients.
I specialize in the purchase and sale of single family homes, condominiums, co-ops, townhomes, lofts and multi-unit dwellings in the city of Chicago with special concentration on the Gold Coast, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, River North, Streeterville, Roscoe Village, Bucktown and Ukranian Village neighborhoods.
An educated buyer is a happy buyer, so it is important to me to help each client understand the market, the market conditions, property values, as well as how the buying and selling process works – from start to finish. One of the best ways to understand the market and property values is to see as many listed properties as possible. Yes, I am willing to take the time to do this for each client. As a full service Broker, I am available to my clients every step of the way to answer their questions and to provide all the help they need to make the process as simple and easy as possible.
Selling Real Estate:
Selling your property for its greatest value in the least amount of time requires a strong partnership between the seller and seller’s agent. 98% of all my listings have gone under contract within the first 30 days because of this cooperation. I will help you ready your home so that it shows to its greatest advantage and explain to you how to avoid the pitfalls of the home inspector's discerning eye.
My twenty five years experience in advertising, marketing and sales promotion prior to entering the real estate business enables me to design a plan for you that provides your property with the maximum exposure needed to attract qualified buyers to your home. Furthermore, my total work experience has provided me with the necessary negotiating skills to get you the price you want for your home.
The Internet:
This marvelous tool is an excellent medium for exposing properties to Buyers, Sellers and Real Estate Agents alike. Clients are now coming to us with a greater knowledge of available properties, names of mortgage brokers and how the mortgage process works, as well as guidelines of what to look for in a property and a Broker.
Nevertheless, buying and selling real estate will remain a personal process and for as long as “Buyer Beware” exists, it is essential to be assisted by an expert who can provide you with sound recommendations of how to proceed, as well as with the names of reputable people in the industry with whom to work. A good real estate agent will help you find the property that fits your lifestyle needs and the technological advances such as the Internet email, virtual tours and on-line brochures will facilitate this process. If you are looking to buy or sell a property and would like an agent that stands for total professionalism and integrity, I would be delighted to work with you. Please contact me at: elizabeth.thiele@bairdwarner.com and/or my direct line 312.981.2083.
